The car was SO UGLY…

View attachment 61449 If someone owns this car now, I apologize now.
Back around 1976-8 when I was attending college, I almost asked this chick out for a date as she had nice hair and derriere, but her car was SO UGLY, I couldn't dare ask her out. And she drove a 'Cuda too!
I saw someone selling a blue version of this car and that chick's particular car popped into my mind. Dang it was ugly. It was a 1973-4 'Cuda with a white vinyl top, white side stripe, and white tail panel, but...

I rec'd these with some awards, and I do not need them. Anyone need about a 12 oz. white porcelain tin cup w/stainless top band, and a white ceramic with gold trim 20oz.? beer stein. Both are white with black MOPAR logo. They are both brand new, never used. $30 for both w/FREE SHIPPING! Both cup and stein weigh almost 2 lbs. Paypal preferred. View attachment 51597

I’m on TV w/my car on GYC!

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on I’m on TV w/my car on GYC!
I was on TV! Well, briefly. My car had more air time than I did. I mentioned last summer I met Mark Worman of Graveyard Carz TV show at the Little Creek Casino car show. Well, I was watching the newest GYC program this morning and there was my car! With me too! As I said...BRIEFLY. If you happen to see this week's show I am sitting in the umbrella chair behind my car. My car has a whole 8 seconds of air time...I only had about 1/2 second. It is better looking.

Pentastar only on passenger front fender?

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Pentastar only on passenger front fender?
Does anyone have a good or logical reason why the factory designers only put the Pentastar on the passenger side front fender, and not both sides? I don't know about Challengers if they are the same, but 'cudas/Barracudas all seem to be this way.
I'm just looking for a reason they would only put it on one side.

I looked thru old forum search and found no reasoning for this.
Thanks!

1970 Barracuda convertible header top removal

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on 1970 Barracuda convertible header top removal
I have heard a couple things about removing the 4-5" wide stainless header panels across the top of the windshield for a convertible. I would like to remove the header panels and take some dents out. But, 1. I've heard there is a ton of sticky tar/silicone that will make it difficult to just simply remove. 2. I was told there are some tiny screws underneath that retain the header panels and I would have to remove the windshield before I can take the header panels off.

To zip or not to zip – glass on convertibles

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on To zip or not to zip – glass on convertibles
I recently heard you are supposed to unzip the back window glass on a convertible before putting the top down. I hadn't heard that before (except on Mustangs), and the former owner of my car didn't unzip his glass when he put his top down and he had it for 24 years. He didn't have any issues and I haven't had any either. Anyone have any guidelines for unzipping or leaving alone? Note, the CAUTION tag on the top does not refer to unzip or leave zipped.
